Military Drug Interdiction Assistance Act - Authorizes the Secretary of Defense (upon request from the head of a Federal agency with jurisdiction to enforce the Controlled Substances Act or the Controlled Substances Import and Export Act) to assign members of the armed forces under his jurisdiction to assist drug enforcement officials in drug searches, seizures, or arrests outside the land area of the United States.
Allows such assistance only if: (1) the assistance will not adversely affect the military preparedness of the United States; (2) the Attorney General verifies that the drug enforcement operation may not succeed without assistance by members of the armed forces; and (3) Federal drug enforcement officials maintain ultimate control over the activities and direction of any drug enforcement operation.
